In true Metal Gear Solid fashion we were shown a five minute cinematic trailer at Sony’s E3 press conference for the upcoming installment in the series, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Also in true Metal Gear Solid fashion the trailer was on the odd side. With Snake smearing his face with the ashes of a fallen solider, a battle with a plastic chair and children wielding guns and running at 5:30+ min it was a true Metal Gear Solid trailer.
Not much information is given through the trailer in terms of story, with nothing more then quick flashes of the game the trailer did a better a job of conveying the gorgeous graphics that Metal Gear Solid V will have. Although the trailer did seem to have a little bit darker tone than would be expected from a Metal Gear Solid game. This worries me that they are trying to take Metal Gear Solid a little too seriously and we will lose what has made the series so great.
You can watch the 5+ minute trailer below.
